The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a signficant accomplishment by a government and its management.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achivement has been awarded to the library's former fiscal officer, Dan Griscom, designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.
